to mr. obama. then you'll have a recession on your hands. if not a recession, bob riech, these high tax policies are going to slow the growth, make it more anemic. >> let me partially agree with both you and casey. i think that the jobs report today was not good. i think that we are still in a jobs recession. we're still in a gravitational pull of the great recession. and i think we ought to have much more on the demand side. i mean i'm not a supply cider. i see that big companies are sitting on $2 trillion of cash. the people at the top are doing very well. the problem is the median wage keeps on going down. most people don't have the cash to keep buying. so the government has got to step in this is the worst time to raise taxes on the middle class. it's the worst time to cut golf spending. then we really are in a recession. that really will bring on a recession. >> do you agree with that, casey. the worst time to cut government spending? >> well most of this spending we've been doing lately is our transfers. and they're paying people for being poor. paying people for not working. i'm

place than we were yesterday. >> if you listen to bob corker, republicans know they have to give on taxes. so i guess, jackie, the key question is, what are the real options here? i mean, i suppose the house could pass the senate bill that extends tax cuts for 98% of americans, leave everything else until january. and use the debt ceiling as leverage. they could try to get some kind of deal on entitlement reform. maybe raising the age for medicare from 65 to 67. what's looking likely or is the problem that there is nothing that looks particularly likely right now, jackie? >> well, some of the things you just listed are going to be part of a framework. i think we're starting to see that. you know, the heavy lifting is going to have to happen this week. just in terms of time. if you don't get something by the 14th or 15th they're not going to have time by the rules to get this through before christmas. otherwise we're getting into christmas, getting into the holidays. it's going to get complicated getting members in and out of town and all that. this week is going to be a critical

have higher tax rates on top earners. tennessee senator bob corker told fox news sunday that republicans should give ground on taxes and concentrate on long-term spending cuts. >> the focus then shifts to entitlements. maybe that puts us in a place where we actually can do something that really saves this nation. so there is a growing body -- i actually am beginning to believe that is the best route for us to take. >> woodruff: but on nbc, house majority whip kevin mccarthy countered that that approach is the wrong way to go. >> it doesn't solve the problem. the president is asking for higher rates, he's asking for more revenue. most economists agree the best way to get that is through closing special loopholes. when you close those it makes a fair tax process. >> woodruff: a new poll from politico and george washington university backed the president's position. 60% favored raising taxes on households earning more than $250,000 a year. 38% were opposed. another survey last week found that by a 2-to-1 margin, americans would blame republicans if there's no agreement by t

bob corker was on our air earlier today and he laid out sort of what the political challenges here for republicans. take a listen. >> it sure seems to me that we're negotiating about something that makes it appear that all we are trying to do is protect the rich. er with not at all focused on entitlement changes which is the only thing that will save our country. >> so when the speaker now briefs his republican leadership colleagues about whatever was in that meeting yesterday, the trick for him is going to be to present it in a way that he gets there and continues to have support. there is mumbling and grumbling about a particular challenge to speaker boehner about republican colleagues early in the new year. that is something the speaker would like to avoid. he has it find a way to get a deal and keep his job at the same time. all of that is tricky can be tyler. >> thank you very much. let's go to the exclusive patented trade mark cliff-o-meter. are we closer to a deal? no deal. we call it right now, right in the middle. that is closer to a deal than it was late last week. basica

has the best policy. >> let's switch gears. fiscal cliff, republican senator bob corker, the latest republican to say, all right. go ahead and raise taxes on the top 2%. here's what he said. >> a lot of people are putting forth a theory, and i actually think it has merit, where you go ahead and give the president the 2% increase that he's talking about, the rate increase on the top 2%, and all of a sudden, the shift goes back to entitlements. >> will, why not give him the 2% and then get what you want on the other issues that are on the table? >> well, senator corker's strategy, his analysis here has a little bit of merit. look, if we give in on the top 2%, if we just say, okay, you get your tax increases on people over $250,000. now what, democrats? now? all that entitlement you've been talking about that you're willing to look at reforming, let's look at it now. nothing's in the way of that. there's a little bit of merit to that. but it also requires you to believe that president obama and the democrats have a real interest in fulfilling that obligation, a real interest in examini

than we do of linking appropriations. host: let's hear from bob in minnesota, republican caller. caller: there is a topic that nobody wants to talk about. it is the interest rate. the interest paid on our national debt. currently, most of the debt is under short term, under 1%. it is manipulated by the federal reserve and the treasury department. it is going to go from a historic -- $1.50 trillion in interest annually on the national debt. how is that going to impact the military industrial complex in the near future when that actually comes to be? guest: that clearly is a ticking time bomb for any part of the federal government. we are in a period of unusually low interest rates. when they rise, it is going to be a body blow to the national politics and the country. the jump from 1% to 7% is such a massive increase in taxes that the only thing i can think of is greece. host: what does it mean for the pentagon? guest: greece used to be one of the only three non-u.s. countries in nato that was spending 2% of gdp on national security. they are now below that because they cannot afford it.
